What platform are you working on?

The simplest solution is to switch to a different windowing framework. There are a number of useful libraries which support various different functionalities and platforms.

Both questions.

Cpw (http://www.mathies.com/cpw/)

GLFW (http://hem.passagen.se/opengl/glfw/)

FreeGLUT (http://freeglut.sourceforge.net/)

FLTK (http://www.fltk.org/)

Or check the opengl.org listings for Frameworks (http://www.opengl.org/users/apps_hardware/applications/devtools.html) .

My personal favorite is Cpw, but hey, I wrote that library. It supports everything your looking for. The code is free and well commented so if your looking for good example code it's a good place to start as well.

Regards,
Jim
